SEM

Woodland Hills has always believed that we are all ministers and missionaries for the Kingdom of Jesus. We have also emphasized practical and transformative equipping that addresses the minds, hearts, lifestyles and relationships of Jesus-followers. Our hope is that by doing so, we will impact the world around us in a Jesus-looking way!

SEM Basics

  • Class sessions are taught by Greg Boyd, Paul Eddy, and Kevin Callaghan
  • School year runs mid-September through mid-May
  • Classes are fully online on Zoom twice a week (currently Wednesday evenings 6:30-9pm CT and Sunday mornings 8-9:30am CT.)
  • Weekly coursework outside of class includes: Readings, watching videos, reflection activities, personal impact papers, and scripture study
  • Each of the three years focuses on a different area of spiritual/ministry formation:
    1. Forming a Jesus-centered worldview and meta-narrative of the Bible
    2. Forming a Jesus-anchored identity and a Jesus-like character and relationships
    3. Forming a Jesus-looking theology and ministry skills

 

This program is part of the Kingdom movement that is rising up around the world. It’s one way for people to network with other like-mind believers, and to get trained on how to participate in the movement.
— Greg Boyd, Senior Pastor

 

What can someone do who has a deep desire to become trained and shaped in the ways of Jesus, and yet already has a full schedule and a busy life? I am excited about SEM because it offers a practical and do-able solution!
— Paul Eddy, Teaching Pastor

"I am a podrishioner that just wanted to say thanks for sharing Woodland Hills through podcasts and videos. This is my place to get a spiritual refill, and it’s where I get most of my teaching from. Since I've starting following you four years ago, my view on God, myself and other people has radically been changed. Thanks so much, and keep sharing the Kingdom!"

– Knut-Inge, from Norway
